About the Author
Bestselling author, magazine columnist, and 50-year-old swimsuit and fitness model, Tosca Reno, has spent the past decade putting her principles of eating clean, health, fitness, and mind/body/spirit wellness in motion in her own life, as well as those of her devotees.

What I loved about this book (over Reno's other books) is her bio of how she went from frumpy to fabulous. To be fair, she does go into this in her other books however, not quite as in depth as she does here. There is an undercurrent of metaphysical/spirituality within the book which is also quite new to Reno's material; she delves into her past of dishonoring herself while putting her husband and children first, her desperate need to please others, followed by how she pulled herself up with incredible courage. By loving herself first and fully, she was able to turn her life around completely; she created a body beautiful, a new husband, a new career, hope, a solid purpose, and a new lease on life. Her story is quite remarkable! After the inspirational bio, Reno also seems to speak to that discouraged part of the reader to become a real 'cheerleader' and the voice of encouragement insisting vibrant health (and a vibrant life) is indeed possible. Outside of this, it reiterates much of what her other books have to say about 'eating clean', strength-based training, and also includes recipes. This book is part fitness/nutrition manual and part personal development coach.
What I disliked about this book is that a lot of it is repackaged material from her other 'eat clean' books. It's a nice attempt to get into the beauty side of things however, outside of how eating clean can affect your exterior appearance, I don't see how make up and facials is relevant; this part of the book would have been better placed in a separate book or left to the experts. Reno could have used this space to elaborate on how a healthy lifestyle affects the mind chemically, how this change affects one's emotions, and how all this (along with the physical changes) drives up self-esteem and revolutionizes every aspect of one's life.
If you're new to clean eating, the basic premise is that instead of counting calories, you eat as closely to nature as possible, making sure to eat a protein at every meal and snack. Also, instead of eating just three meals a day, you graze throughout the day, eating five or six "mini-meals." When I first started following Tosca's principles in her first clean eating book a few years ago, I was able to go down from a size 6 to a size 0 -- and I was never hungry! It's nice to not be on a "diet," but rather on a meal plan that allows you to eat a lot, retain muscle, and lose body fat.
Since as of the date of my review (10/5/10), there is no Look Inside feature available for this book, I thought I'd go ahead and provide a breakdown of the chapters:
--Part I: The Road to a Fabulous New You -- At Any Age
* Chapter 1: My Journey
* Chapter 2: Champion a "New You": Allow Yourself to Live Better
* Chapter 3: Jump-Start Your Best Body Now!Read more ›

I really enjoyed her approach in writing this book. It's simple to read and really motivating. I have recommended this book to my friends for us all to have our best body now!Published 8 months ago by VonVera
Her books are helpful, but this is NOT the book you want to read first. Read this one after you read her other books. Read morePublished on June 23, 2014 by joyfulheart1
Kinda repetitive. I'd recommend only reading first 2 chapters. Not worth buying. Ask someone who read it and you will get all the info you need: workout, eat 6 small meals a day,... Read morePublished on June 19, 2014 by Liz T.
